The Musculoskeletal System for Herbalists – 20232020-03-15T14:24:49+00:00

This is an online course. You can take this anywhere you have an internet connection. You do not have to be present in our area to take the course!

The primary goal of this module is to understand the body’s musculoskeletal system through the eyes of the herbalist.

This 4-week, online course includes two live classes (which are recorded and then accessible through download as well) per week.  During the four weeks we will explore in depth the physiology (and some anatomy) of the musculoskeletal system.

Injury, illness and healing in the body can be more fully understood by investigating the tissue affected. This includes understanding soft tissue and skeletal response to injury, infection and chronic illness.  What types of tissue, blood supply and cellular regrowth/recovery do we see when working our way from the innermost section of a bone, to the tissue surrounding the bone superficially to connective tissue and muscle? What are some of the most important anatomical landmarks and locations that we should be aware of in responding to musculoskeletal injury and illness?  What other organ and physiological systems are crucial to understand in their support of the musculoskeletal system as it heals?

Topics that will be explored and taught in this course include:

  • Understanding musculoskeletal inflammation – local and systemic
  • Musculoskeletal stress: Load vs. recovery
  • Crucial stress points – joints and joint physiology
  • Herbal delivery systems: Getting the herb to the tissue
  • Sports medicine concepts for the herbalist
  • Understanding infection in musculoskeletal tissue
  • Chronic musculoskeletal diseases
  • Chronic musculoskeletal injuries
  • Musculoskeletal pain management
  • Materia medica (i.e. herbs) and their usage for musculoskeletal pathologies

Live webinars take place twice a week. Handouts, videos of webinars (for those who can’t make a class during its live presentation), Q & A forum and a final quiz will all be accessible through online classroom.

Each pathophysiology module now includes an optional medicine making option for all students who want to participate.  This will be an exercise that helps students to use their materia medica for the course and create a formula that is specific to what is learned in the course.

This is an online course. You can take this anywhere you have an internet connection. You do not have to be present in our area to take the course!

The Integumentary (Skin) System for the Herbalist: “Identifying and understanding acute and chronic illness of the skin”

The integumentary module (one of the pathophysiology modules) is an in-depth study of the physiology and pathophysiology of the skin – from the standpoint of the clinical herbalist.  This often includes infections or disorders that do not originate in the skin but present themselves on the skin.

This 4-week, integumentary module is packed with information to introduce you to the anatomy and physiology of all layers of the skin (epidermis, dermis, subcutaneous) as well as the physiology of disease as it occurs or presents itself through or on these layers. How can we understand the integumentary tract from the standpoint of herbal medicine, and what information do we need to know specifically as a clinical herbalist when dealing with skin disorders?

Another aspect of understanding skin diseases is in the identification.  Here there is often much confusion at the clinical level, especially if it may not be possible to rely on lab tests or we know that lab tests may not actually address underlying causes.  This course will also focus on identifying many of the most common skin ailments found primarily in the USA.

Aside from addressing symptoms and root causes of the integumentary tract and will also present a materia medica (specific herbs) as well as preparation/administration of those herbs in order to most effectively help the body heal itself when facing these disease processes.

Both acute and chronic skin disease will be addressed in this class, as well as underlying causes and organ systems affecting the skin directly or indirectly.

· Acute skin infections (staph, MRSA, cellulitis, impetigo, cold sores, hives, warts, ringworm & other fungal infections, rashes, erysipelas and more)

· Chronic, auto-immune and other re-occurring skin disorders (eczema, rosacea, psoriasis, vitiligo, hypohidrosis, herpes-virus related, acne and more )

Specific relationships between nutrition, lifestyle and skin disorders will be emphasized as well.

Each pathophysiology module now includes an optional medicine making option for all students who want to participate.  This will be an exercise that helps students to use their materia medica for the course and create a formula that is specific to what is learned in the course.

The Respiratory System for the Herbalist: “Understanding acute and chronic illness of respiratory tract”

The respiratory module (one of the pathophysiology modules) is an in-depth study of the physiology and pathophysiology of the respiratory tract –from the standpoint of the clinical herbalist.

This 4-week, respiratory module is packed with information to introduce you to the anatomy and physiology of the respiratory tract as well as the physiology of disease when it occurs in the respiratory tract.  How do we understand the respiratory tract from the viewpoint of herbal medicine, and what information do we need to know specifically as a clinical herbalist?

This class will delve into some of the most common disorders (symptoms and root causes) of the respiratory tract and will also present a materia medica (specific herbs) as well as preparation/administration of those herbs in order to most effectively help the body heal itself when facing these disease processes.

Some of the respiratory disease processes that will be studied include:
· Acute upper respiratory tract illness (colds, flu, strep throat, mono)

· Sinus infections (acute and chronic)

· Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) illness – Asthma, Chronic Bronchitis, Emphysema
· Lower respiratory disease (Pneumonia, Pleuritis, Sarcoidosis, Tuberculosis, Cystic Fibrosis)

Additionally, we will discuss lifestyle and nutritional needs for good respiratory health, and examine how to support the respiratory tract as a vital component to fitness and health.

Each pathophysiology module now includes an optional medicine making option for all students who want to participate.  This will be an exercise that helps students to use their materia medica for the course and create a formula that is specific to what is learned in the course.
